Chelsea: £93.6m trio could follow Lukaku in leaving Stamford Bridge

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel looking serious

Chelsea attackers Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech could all leave Stamford Bridge this summer, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The trio cost the Blues £93.6m but have been unable to nail down a regular place under Thomas Tuchel in recent years and started less than 40 Premier League games combined last season.

What’s the latest news involving Hudson-Odoi, Pulisic and Ziyech?

An Achilles tendon injury might have seen Hudson-Odoi miss the final four months of the campaign, but when he was fit and available, he was often picked by Tuchel.

Overall, he made 28 appearances in all competitions, although his return of three goals and six assists was an underwhelming one for the England international.

Ziyech played the most minutes of the three (2489), but like many of Chelsea’s wide players, he found himself in and out of the side.

The ex-Ajax ace did score in three consecutive league games in the New Year, including a sumptuous strike against Tottenham, but his moments of brilliance weren’t often enough, which explains why he only started 14 top-flight games.

Where did Chelsea legend Didier Drogba start his career?

Pulisic had a similar record to Ziyech as he started just one fewer top-flight match, but once again he was unable to start games regularly and therefore found himself on the bench on a regular basis.

As a result, Jones reckons the trio could all follow Romelu Lukaku out of Stamford Bridge.

What did Jones say about Hudson-Odoi, Pulisic and Ziyech?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “Lukaku is leaving and we’re also going to see others from that frontline leave, there’s doubts over Ziyech, Hudson-Odoi and Pulisic.”

Has anyone been linked with Hudson-Odoi, Pulisic and Ziyech?

While there’s been no concrete links with a move away from the capital for Hudson-Odoi, reports in Italy suggest that AC Milan are lining up a loan move for Ziyech, which would see him link up with ex-Chelsea teammates Fikayo Tomori and Oliver Giroud, who played a huge part in their recent title winning season.

Meanwhile, German journalist Christian Falk revealed earlier this month that Liverpool were targeting a move for Pulisic as a potential replacement for Sadio Mane.

Juventus are also interested in the USA international, who’s scored 25 goals and laid on 18 assists since he arrived from Borussia Dortmund.
